No, this is NOT news that former Batman, Adam West, will be appearing/voicing anything in Batman 3. Relax. This is news that that West may be voicing Bruce Wayne’s father, Thomas, in the Cartoon Network animated series, Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

The rumor comes from Collider, where they have a quote from one member of The Brave and the Bold‘s creative team (who Collider is keeping unnamed for now) who hints that West will be voicing Thomas Wayne on the show’s next season. Here’s the quote:

“Julie Newmar is playing Martha Wayne, and playing Bruce’s father, Thomas Wayne, will be Adam West! I think they’re very appropriate parents for Batman… I should probably not be revealing this.”

The episode West will allegedly lend his voice is said to take its story from some of the original Batman comics (specifically mentioned is the miniseries The Untold Legend of Batman). It introduced the notion that Batman’s father actually wore the bat costume before he did, fighting mobsters in the bat suit while at a costume party.

It seems almost fitting that West would lend his voice to The Brave and the Bold, considering the cartoon series is often compared to the original ’60s TV series (in terms of lightheartedness, that is) where West portrayed Batman himself. West has voiced several different roles in various Batman short films and cartoons, but, now being an older gentleman, it seems really appropriate (and humorous) that he’d voice Batman’s father.

If this rumor turns out to be true, what would you think about Adam West voicing Batman’s dad?

  1. Why no love for Julie Newmar as his mom? She was Catwoman.

  2. I love that Adam West can poke fun at himself like he does on Family Guy as the mayor of Quahog. I think it’s great that he respects what made him famous, and that he is willing to stay in the Batverse.

  3. Bring him back for the real #3! The original batman movie/show was brilliantly awesome and fun. I think it would be a great to bring him in somewhere in Nolan’s next. Even if it is a character there for 5 seconds, they should. I would love to see something like the ridiculous toys too like shark repellant too, but that would go against all that Nolan has done. It would be like Stan Lee in the marvel movies, except you don’t have to make it cheesy like Hugh Hefner.

  4. I would love to have a beer with this guy!

  5. Sounds good. Adam West for The Riddler in B3 (don’t suppose he could take being kicked around too much though)!

    Nothing for Burt Ward? And is it just me or is he looking like Ted Kennedy these days?
